‘The Other Story’ Online: Digital Exhibition Histories

Are you interested in how contemporary art is presented and then critically received? What do you know about the history of racism in the British art establishment? Would you like participate in the design of a web prototype before its public launch?

Dr Lucy Steeds is working with a cross-course team of UAL students to develop an interactive digital platform for documenting and re-activating a highly significant exhibition of contemporary art that took place in 1989: ‘The Other Story: Afro-Asian Artists in Post-War Britain’. This exhibition, which first took place at the Hayward Gallery in London, will be mapped visually and spatially online, and then shared with the public for interactive engagement – all in collaboration with a group of students.

We will gather on Wednesday afternoons during May 2016, 4pm to 6pm at CSM, Kings Cross. We will be joined by visiting speakers – including Rasheed Araeen and Sonia Boyce – and session reports will be posted here.

Any enquiries? Please contact Lucy Steeds l.steeds@csm.arts.ac.uk

Research initiated by Afterall at UAL, supported by a Digital Project Grant from the Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art and amplified through UAL Curriculum Development Funding.
